Janet’s life was altered during the summer of 2013. She was a juror in the high-profile criminal trial of James “Whitey” Bulger. It wasn’t the criminality of Bulger that transformed Janet’s world. She anticipated this — especially when Bulger’s own attorney declared his client “guilty” of many of the charges. What transformed her was the corruption within the judiciary and the failure of the media to take notice. Janet’s research of the case and all that surrounds it has shaken her to the core. Her inside knowledge and on-going communication with those deeply immersed in this story – including Bulger — has unlocked information never revealed. The Truth Be Damned, is a work of fiction based not only on Janet’s experience as juror #12, but also her extensive research following that trial. Though written in fictional format, the reader is encouraged to determine where the fiction ends, and the truth begins. As one who is comfortable coloring outside the lines, Janet breaks the boundaries of literary fiction with appendices in this book containing excerpts of letters from James Bulger. Meet Janet and hear her read from her book Truth Be Damned at the BSC.
